Acheinu Jewish Russian Educational Centre

Ages 5-11/Grade 1-6

Acheinu Jewish Russian Educational Centre

Our purpose is to involve children in Jewish community activities and teach them some basic rules about being Jewish. But, of course, the only methods of teaching are games and music, having a good time and making friends. And one more important thing: we speak Russian to help kids to learn their native language.

Russian language, Math, Art, Hebrew, Jewish tradition & Holidays.
